NPMs Media Savvy for Māori Researchers workshop was held recently at Waipapa Marae, University of Auckland.
A group of researchers from across the country gathered together to gain valuable insights into communication skills and media training, guided by the fantastic Science Media Centre team from Wellington.
From communicating with style, to presence and performance, giving an effective interview, using clear and compelling language, and interviewing under pressure - the researchers learned about the changing media environment and were challenged to pitch their research to a panel of visiting journalists.
This workshop is designed to encourage effective media engagement, build skills and confidence and enable researchers to navigate a sometimes complex media landscape with success.
We are currently planning our next Media Savvy Workshop for November/December 2019, and will promote it out to our network once we finalise a date. Watch this space!
